Wide Corn-Row Spaces and Wheat Interseedings1
- G. H. Stringfield and
- J. L. Haynes2
Full-season, “wide-row” (72-inch) corn yielded 10 to 15 bushels per acre less than earlier (1 week) corn in normally spaced (42-inch) rows with, each at about its own optimum stand, 12,000 and 16,000 plants per acre, respectively. Wheat interseeded in 72-inch row spaces at Hessian fly-safe dates yielded more than when conventionally seeded 2 weeks later, by 2 bushels per acre on well drained soil and by 13 bushels where poor drainage led to winterkilling.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
